Work Insights


When I filter my work insight charts to not include Blanks it is only filtering out some of the values. My filter is ("column Does Not Contain "")

Does anyone know how to make it pickup all blank values?

    I was able to remove some of the blanks by setting up a formal to exclude rows that contain "=" so that rows with formulas are not being counted. I'm still having some rows show up as blank.

    Do you have a photo to illustrate this? and do share the formula that you've tried.

    Hi @Miles Allison

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Can you describe your process in more detail and maybe share the sheet(s)/copies of the sheet(s) or some screenshots? (Delete/replace any confidential/sensitive information before sharing) That would make it easier to help. (share too,

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!

    I need to know what would make a row show up as "Blank" in the column snapshot. The initial snapshot show the correct column totals but also included a Blank column with a count of about 700. I entered a filter for "Does not Contain "=" because I figured it was counting formulas in blank rows, and that lowered the blank column from 700 to about 328. I then tried to enter another formula saying "Does not Contain" "" to see if that would filter out the rest of the blank columns but that didn't work. I'm trying to think of what else the Column Snapshot is counting for that blank column.
